Dg.o 2017 to be held during June 7-9, 2017 in Staten Island, New York, a borough of New York City. We invite you to submit poster and system demonstration proposals on your work, completed or work in progress, related to the broad set of digital government research and application areas covered by the dg.o conference.

The Posters and Demonstration session is one of highlights of the conference, and is considered as an excellent way to receive feedback from the conference audience. The session will be held on the evening of June 9th, in an informal session with light evening pre-dinner foods and drinks. The informal setup is a great way to communicate with the authors in one-to-one interactions the research ideas, work-in-progress and matured research, and one of the most popular venue for the students as well as researchers. 

Descriptions of posters must be original and unpublished accounts of research work in progress, or research that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical format. They should report at least the motivation and research questions, methodologies or technologies, and preliminary results. Poster proposals will appear in the proceedings.

The demo proposal must describe the demonstrated system, clearly indicate what is going to be demonstrated, and the 2-page summaries should outline the nature of the system and describe why the demonstration is likely to be of interest to dg.o attendees. It could state the significance of the contribution to digital government research, practice, applications or technologies. Demonstrations of interest include systems under development or in active use in research or practice domains. Proposals should not be published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. Demonstration papers will appear in the proceedings.
